As one of he other reviewers said, if you want TV, wireless and the amenities of a standard Best Western this is not your place. For those complaining about the price of either the hotel or the restaurant I wonder whether they have ever eaten or stayed in Banff, Lake Louise or Jasper. Standard blah hotels in Banff on Banff Ave run $150-200 a night not even high season and they are boring and generic with no atmosphere. This place is a bit of history. It is cozy, the rooms are simple and the common areas are divine. I love the fact that the common areas are only for guests. We enjoyed our time here and found the staff and the owners very friendly. We had a very good dinner for 2 with shared appie, dessert and a bottle of wine for $ 100. It wasn't cheaper but you could easily pay that at many places in Banff. The mushrooms were delicious as were both the Steak and the Elk Burger. All and all the atmosphere was wonderful and we will be back. As mentioned by others the walls are thin. I don't imagine that will change due to the age of the hotel so bring ear plugs. My only suggestions would be to invest in redoing the bathrooms (more specifically the showerheads) as they seem to have quite a bit of calcification. In all, if you want character, an amazing view and history and find the quirks of an older place charming - stay here.
